    You wouldn't start a project without knowing what you wanted to achieve or set off on a journey without knowing where you wanted to go, so why treat your career development differently?

    Take charge of your professional development by creating a plan to structure and focus your learning, ensuring you make the most of learning opportunities and aren't overwhelmed by the variety of choices available.

    The following resources are provided to help you create your own professional development plan.

    NZPI has a collection of planning articles, videos, podcasts and training resources for members, to gain access see Planning on Demand and our Document Library.
